Serpicect is an indigenous species of the Amazon Tropical Forests. Its name originated from "serpent" and "centipede." Averaging around 14 to 16 inches long, this species has unique traits of both serpent and centipede species. A serpicect has protruding horns from either side of its head in resemblance of a centipede's pinchers. As a defense mechanism, it projects venom through its pinchers. This venom is highly neuro-toxic and causes instantaneous paralysis. It has sensory heat radar through its tongue enabling it to detect any predators. The head of the serpicect has a strong resemblance of the serpent species. The bulk of the body consists of sectional exoskeleton features, similar to the centipede. The serpicect's legs stand about two inches tall and has the circumference of approximately half of an inch. It has the ability to adjust its exoskeleton colors in accordance to its surroundings. This mechanism allows the serpicect to easily deceive its prey. It commonly feasts on tropical rats and larger tropical bugs. First, it will adjust its exoskeleton to match its surroundings. Then, within an instant it jolts towards its prey puncturing the prey with its pinchers. Thereby, releasing the venom causing instant paralysis. Once the prey is immobile, the serpicect dislocates its jawbone in order to swallow the prey whole, similar to the serpent species. The segments of the exoskeleton expand as it digests its food. This indigenous species was first founded by Ngoc Thi Jane Do in the late 1940's. Jane Do attended Oxford University and graduated with a degree in the study of the indigenous creatures. Her original mission was explore and discover possible new species in the tropical rain forests in the Amazon.
